URUGUAY’S OFFICIAL ENTRY TO THE ACADEMY AWARDS® – BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
Up-and-coming Uruguayan director Germán Tejeira creates a moving, poignant, witty character study in his first feature film.
On New Year’s Eve, three lonely characters travel to a small town in the Uruguayan countryside. Cesar, a divorced man, arrives at the town, where he will have dinner with his ex-wife’s new family in an attempt to win back his daughter’s love. Antonio, a small-time magician, is trying to get to the town to perform his routine at the community center, but his car breaks down. Stranded in the middle of the deserted road, he meets Laura, a woman working at the toll station. Miguel, a performer, prepares to sing at the community center’s New Year’s Eve party. By following their paths to the town, the characters have a chance to change their destinies.
